In order to define what is the perfect breakfast, we first have to know what is required of this meal so that once encountered it’s recognised for what it is. If you don’t know what your body really needs, how can you possibly provide it except on a best guess basis? The evidence is everywhere...

In advance of your Labor Day, no need to tell your guests to save up on calories so they can enjoy the festive food. Warm summer days such as Labor Day is always an excuse for barbecue.  Some do it the old fashioned way with charcoal while others prefer the less messy way with gas. I...

This is getting scary.  And I owe you all a big apology. A ticking time bomb? A while back, I wrote about the introduction of a new sandwich from Kentucky Fried Chicken called the Double Down, which most people agreed was disgusting and unhealthy and clearly an attempt to kill off KFC’s customers...
